Not in Oviedo or Winter Springs?

Our Club would be happy to accept any qualifying contestant from throughout the area for either the ESSAY or ORATORICAL CONTESTS.  The one rule, however, is that a contestant may only participate in each contest through only ONE CLUB (whichever one they pick).  NO participant may submit for a given contest through more than one Optimist Club in any given year.
